Deputies from the of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department revived a La Crescenta kitty after a recent house fire.
The fire broke out in the 5100 block of Glenwood Ave. just before 10:30 a.m. on June 6. When deputies and firefighters arrived on the scene they discovered that the residents were not inside- but the family cat was. Deputies Roger Burt, Chad Plumier, and Brian Tibbett kicked in the front door and firefighters raced inside to find the feline, who was found unresponsive.
The deputies administered oxygen to the calico and revived it. Fire Department unit #63 responded with Captain Funke and Investigator Dahlmeier, Shepherd said.
The fire caused damage in excess of $25,000, and may have been caused by a curling iron left on in a rear bedroom closet.
